Also to get that subborn SOB off, I would just cut the wire at the sensor, double wrench it (useing the box end) with the largest wrench possible and use your friend, Mr Leverage, to do the hard work...just watch your knuckles.
You can also use a special socket make for removing O2 sensors, but i would never try a line wrench on these (it always ends badly)
Pretty sound advice, I don't think I would cut the cable just yet incase there is a way of putting in the new O2 sensor without having to tie wires together. Mr. Leverage can still be used just have to have a wrench with 2 open ends if you don't cut the cable.
